Netflix is now available in the UK!

I just got an email from Netflix announcing their service is now available in the UK and inviting users to sign up for a one months free trial. The starting price is 5.99 per month for online streaming only. No discs in the post service yet.

I am pretty tempted to cancel my Love Film subscription and switch to Netflix, but only if I can get Netflix in Windows Media Center?

I actually called Netflix, the person I spoke to said I can use the browser and Silverlight but he was not sure about the WMC add-in. I would assume for UK users to get the Netflix add-in in WMC they will have to change their locale to the US. I will try and contact Microsoft to find out more.
